15 pisma zebrane FOREWORD The release of the St. Stanislaus Papczyński: Selected Writings in English is an excellent way to celebrate the 350th Jubilee of the religious community he founded: the Congregation of Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception. The author of these writings was an educated Pole, an expert in his native language, yet most of his written works — in fact, all of his surviving works — were written in Latin. This was because —firstly — as a man of the Church, a professor of rhetoric and the author of one of the most important books in that field (Prodromus Reginae Artium, a textbook on rhetoric, which was reprinted during his lifetime as many as four times), he wrote in the language of the Church, that is, in Latin. Secondly, although in following his directives the religious community he founded had to conduct the work of evangelization and catechesis among the poor and simple people, he realized that cultures were shaped by the upper classes, which used Latin, the language then accepted by all circles of power both ecclesial and secular, as well as by the intelligentsia and commercial classes. English has undoubtedly become such a language in our day. Thus, the release of St. Stanislaus of Jesus and Mary’s writings in English is a fitting effort in fulfilling our Founder’s desire to reach, with the Gospel and Catholic doctrine, all spheres of public life, especially those that may influence the lives of other people. The author of the works included in the present publication lived some centuries ago, so someone may question the logic of publishing these works today. This question is relevant inasmuch as it leads to an answer that gives us an immediate understanding of these writings’ timeless value for the Church and human patrimony. First of all, regardless of when a particular person lived, human life itself carries a lasting value. Children perfectly and spontaneously understand this after the death of a parent. And

16 foreword this is precisely the case of St. Stanislaus of Jesus and Mary Papczyński’s spiritual sons, members of the Congregation of Marian Fathers that he founded, and all the people around the world who participate in and live out the charism of this Congregation. For them, his spiritual heritage has ageless importance. Furthermore, as the Church — in the person of Pope Francis — proclaimed Fr. Stanislaus a saint of the Catholic Church, he became for all a model of a life of faith, hope, and love. He also became a universal advocate of all the faithful, which finds confirmation in countless testimonies of his intercession in extremely difficult matters not only in Poland or the United States but also in Brazil, Rwanda, Cameroon, Ukraine, Philippines, Kazakhstan, Belarus, etc. Therefore, making his writings available to the larger public creates an opportunity to familiarize them with the way he lived out his faith, his manner of thinking, and his understanding of the Gospel, in addition to his witness to the Christian life, due to which the Church raised him to the altars. Reading the works of saints not only broadens our horizon of faith, but most of all, supplies an interpretation of the Gospel. In this sense, St. Stanislaus’ work entitled Inspectio Cordis has a special meaning, because it is a meditation on the Word of God connected to a specific day. His other works of a similar nature, such as The Crucified Orator or The Suffering Christ, are dedicated to biblical meditation on the Passion of Christ. His Mystical Temple of God is a complete spiritual treatise on God’s plan for man, who was created as His mystical temple and who — thanks to cooperation with God’s grace — grows more in awareness of it and in holiness. What is more: all of St. Stanislaus’ written works are marked by his experience of God’s merciful love and his desire to share his faith with others, so that the whole Church may become holy and without blemish (cf. Eph 1: 4). The translation of the presently published work involved the effort of many people, especially Casimir Krzyżanowski, MIC, who had previously translated and published shorter works of St. Stanislaus of Jesus and Mary Papczyński. I would like to express my gratitude to all of the translators, proofreaders, and trans-

17 foreword lation consultants whose names are mentioned in the editorial note. Thanks to their joint effort, this translation has been created, which will serve future generations, both of the spiritual sons of St. Stanislaus, as well as all those interested in the spirituality and history of the Church. However, the book St. Stanislaus Papczyński: Selected Writings was created mainly thanks to the determination of Andrew Mączyński, MIC, who defined the concept of this publication, as well as supervised the production. The publication appeared thanks to him and the enormous work of Patrick Lynch, MIC, and Marina Batiuk, who collected both the previously as well as recently translated works and those revised by different people and supplied them with appropriate introductions, either new or previously existing. In addition, Patrick Lynch, MIC, worked diligently to verify the English translations with the original Latin of St. Stanislaus. Many English-speaking people, especially from the areas where the Congregation of Marian Fathers is present, have been long waiting for this publication. I am thinking particularly of the countries in Asia. Expressing my gratitude to all those who participated in the preparation for the release of St. Stanislaus Papczyński: Selected Writings, I can confidently say that their work will bear great fruit, both spiritual and cultural. Surely, no less grateful will be the people who read this book. I entrust everyone to the Immaculate Mother of the Lord, in the favorite words of St. Stanislaus of Jesus and Mary Papczyński: Immaculata Virginis Mariae Conceptio, sit nobis salus et protectio!

19 pisma zebrane A WORD FROM THE PUBLISHER The Selected Writings of St. Stanislaus Papczyński represents a collection of nearly all the written works of the Marian Founder translated into English. The works omitted in this English translation include the majority of Stanislaus’ work on the art of rhetoric (Prodromus Reginae Artium), and also two panegyrics. In the case of Prodromus, certain excerpts were included because of their aesthetic and spiritual value, but the rest was omitted due to size constraints and the fact that a detailed manual of rhetoric would not be of interest to most readers. The panegyrics were omitted because the complexity of St. Stanislaus’ Baroque Latin renders them unable to be satisfactorily expressed in English. These works are best studied in the original Latin by those to whom it is of interest. Two important events led to the release of this book. First, there was the desire to commemorate Fr. Stanislaus’ canonization, which took place on June 5, 2016 in the Vatican. Second, in 2020 there was the 350th anniversary of the founding of the Congregation of Marian Fathers (December 11, 1670). These events occurred at a time when the Congregation had been slowly changing its national profile, from a community living and serving mainly within the circles of Polish-Lithuanian culture to one that has a field of influence in Africa, Asia and Oceania and naturally, English-speaking cultures. Since English is now used in the Congregation at a level on par with the Polish language, an urgent need arose to provide the new generations of English-speaking Marians with source materials on the history and spirituality of the Congregation to ground them in their Marian identity. Although we know that Fr. Papczyński wrote works in Latin and Polish, the only surviving works are Latin texts. Alongside the release of his Selected Writings, a critical edition is being prepared of all the Marian Founder’s writings in their original Latin:

20 a word from the publisher Sanctus Stanislaus Papczyński, Scripta Collectanea. The work of translating this collection into English, which took almost a decade, was completed by a team of several people (members of the Congregation and one lay person). The translation work was initiated by the late Casimir Krzyżanowski, MIC. However, the entire collection of St. Stanislaus’ works, which we present here, would have never been finalized had it not been for the dedicated work of Patrick Lynch, MIC, of the youngest generation of Marians, who began studying classical and ecclesiastical Latin at the age of 13 and continued his studies for the next 7 years as a student in the Classical Liberal Arts Academy. Not only did Patrick Lynch, MIC, personally translate many texts from Latin, but he also performed editorial work on the entire collection. Likewise a special recognition goes to a group of young Marians, spiritual sons of St. Stanislaus who were involved in the work of the final editing and proofreading of this collection. They undertook this task with great zeal, dedication, and professionalism. Our deep gratitude also goes to the following additional persons who participated at various stages in the work of translating and editing this publication: Richard Drabik, MIC; Martin Rzeszutek, MIC; Marina Batiuk; Joseph Romagnano; and Robert Stackpole. Selected Writings was translated into English mainly from the critical editions of St. Stanislaus’ writings in Latin, previously prepared and released by Casimir Krzyżanowski, MIC, who also provided them with erudite introductions. The translation of St. Stanislaus Papczyński’s works into Polish, released in Warsaw in 2016 under the title of Pisma Zebrane, was sometimes used as a point of reference for the English translation. The collection of works included in this book does not follow chronological order. First comes the Rule of Life, being the most characteristic of the spirituality of Fr. Papczyński and the Congregation of Marian Fathers, which he founded. Subsequent works are arranged according to size of the text, from the longest to the shortest. The Appendix at the end of the book contains three documents that were not written by Fr. Stanislaus Papczyński. They are the précises of the Marian Founder’s letters, drawn up

21 a word from the publisher by the Congregation for Bishops and Religious in Rome. Each of these documents has been given an introduction explaining its contents, the circumstances of its composition, and its significance. These introductions were borrowed from Pisma Zebrane, the above-mentioned Polish translation of St. Stanislaus’ writings. In addition, Selected Writings contains the Calendarium of St. Stanislaus’ life, expanded to cover the events related to his canonization and the list of his written works and bibliographies. These were also borrowed from the Polish and critical Latin editions. Because St. Stanislaus used the Latin Vulgate for his quotations of Scripture, we have found it best to make use of several English translations of the Bible in order to allow us to be as faithful as possible to the meaning intended by Stanislaus in his original quotations, while also making the translation as readable as possible. The English Bible translations quoted throughout these works are the Revised Standard Version: Catholic Edition, the New American Bible, and the Douay-Rheims. Sometimes a direct translation from the Vulgate was also used. The present publication has been long awaited not only by the English-speaking Marians and scholars of religious history and spirituality, but also by a large group of venerators of our saint, whose fame and holiness — already established during his lifetime — continues to spread today. However, the publication of this collection of writings in English has a special meaning for his spiritual sons, the Marians. Grasping the Founder’s charism, and by extension the Marian heritage, is not possible without studying his writings. These were previously available as a complete volume only in Polish. The translated texts presented in this volume are the fruit of the research recommended by the Conciliar Decree on the Adaptation and Renewal of Religious Life, Perfectae Caritatis (No. 2): “Therefore let their founders’ spirit and special aims they set before them as well as their sound traditions — all of which make up the patrimony of each institute — be faithfully held in honor.” This publication will be a new source of knowledge for anyone interested in the spirituality or history of the Church, especially concerning the 17th century.

22 a word from the publisher Offering this collection of St. Stanislaus of Jesus and Mary Papczyński’s writings, we wish to encourage his venerators and all readers to embark on the path of holiness. This was the goal to which Fr. Stanislaus subordinated his legislative and pastoral activities and his writings. According to him, man is a mystical temple of God (templum Dei mysticum), and this temple must be holy. The model of holiness is Christ Himself and His Immaculately Conceived Mother. May St. Stanislaus Papczyński’s attitude find its eloquent manifestation in one of the last instructions he addressed to his spiritual sons in his second Testament: “I leave the portrait of my Person to the curious to be looked at, whereas the life of my Lord Jesus Christ to be imitated” (No. 9). We trust that the study of St. Stanislaus Papczyński’s writings hereby presented will contribute to the strengthening of faith, hope, and love in those individuals striving for holiness throughout the world.

Chronological Index of Fr. Stanislaus Papczyński’s Extant and Lost Written Works The following list of Fr. Stanislaus Papczyński’s extant and lost writings was compiled on the foundation of research conducted by Casimir Krzyżanowski, MIC. He relied mainly on the decree issued by the Congregation of Rites, which had examined the compliance of Papczyński’s teaching with the doctrine of the Catholic Church as part of his beatification process. He also used other historical testimonies. Thanks to this, we know that in the year of issuance of the decree Super eorum examine, revisione et approbatione, that is, in 1775, some of Fr. Papczyński’s written works, which did not survive to this day, were still in existence. On the other hand, some writings of the Marian Founder — including letters and documents — of whose existence we know but not their titles, or whose contents are only known to us in a fairly general and approximate manner, have been grouped into subsections. A detailed list of lost documents, which includes a brief description of their titles, content and sources confirming their existence, can be found in the doctoral dissertation of Fr. C. Krzyżanowski, MIC, and the Positio.1 1 Cf. K.J. Krzyżanowski, MIC, Stanislaus a Iesu Maria Papczyński O.IMM., CONC. (1631–1701).
